Oh. Holy. Crap.

  1. I know! It looks so good. :) I've loved sharing it with my students all day today. Nothing better than proving to them, once again, that almost every fabulous movie actually came from a great book!

  4. I really, really, really, (and many times over) hope it doesn't suck.

    Not a fan of whoever it is they picked for Gale and Peeta.

    haha, i'm with the 'almost' criers. Watched it at least 5 times already, here to say I still have to fight back the waterworks toward the end of the trailer

  7. I'm with the full on criers. This looks like it's going to be spectacular.

    I don't understand all the people who are whining about the casting. People always whine about the casting until they see the movie and then they get over it. Personally, I think the casting is perfect. No, it's not who I saw "in my head." But how can it be?

  8. I've watched this 3x in the past 24 hours. I'd watch it more but the phones keep ringing at work. :D I'm very excited for this movie!

  9. Seriously, I am just SO happy with it. Gale, especially, is very similar to how I pictured him.

  10. This movie looks awesome. I am excited to see it.

    It even inspired me to create a list of upcoming YA Fantasy book based movies on my blog!

    The Hunger Games made my list!

  12. Becky, oh, I hadn't thought of that! Good for you. I bet that's been a blast.

    Sandy, I really think she is as well. Can't wait to see her in action.

    Mari, gives you chills, doesn't it?

    Laura, me, too. Me, too.

    Alexa, lol!

    Camie, does it? That's awesome, I love that! I really think it looks spectacular.

    librarian, lol. I hear ya. It's going to be very emotional.

    Diana, exactly. I just put aside what my mental images from the book and give the film its own chance to wow me. And frankly I'm already wowed. So exciting!

    Alicia, hehe. No shame. I'm about to watch it again right now. :)

    Janssen, I love hearing that. And I'm glad. Can't wait to see the full length film.

    R.J., it really does. I'll have to check out your list for sure. Sounds great.

    Matt, LOL. Haymitch, right? ;)

  13. I thought I was just hormonal and pregnant, cause I shed full on tears too, but I guess that's the norm! I was not expecting that flood of emotion!

  14. Aww dammit it looks really good!

  15. Liza, I completely understand. That brief shot of Rue killed me.

    Holly, right?!

  16. I was seriously on the fence with going to the theater to see this (I loathe the theater) but man, now I don't know how I can avoid it. Still bummed on the Lenny Kravitz casting but I'll have to learn to deal.

Review | The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q  when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion — a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1   a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes.  Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record,  both a

Review | If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane

It's been years since I picked up a Mhairi McFarlane novel, and I'm not really sure why that is. I liked  It's Not Me, It's You well enough (it's obvious she's quite a witty writer), but something about the execution felt off and I think I let that keep me from diving deeper into her backlist. Then came an offer to review her upcoming title If I Never Met You , and something about this one seemed to call out to me. As though it was time. As though Laurie and Jamie might be the ones. Spoiler alert: It was and they were. It was the perfect read for a couple of dreary, grey January days. While not perhaps as bubbly as I've Got Your Number , I would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoyed that novel. They share a business setting, two individuals who are more than they know themselves to be, and a wonderfully slow burn romance. Readers who love Sarra Manning and  Beth O'Leary 's  The Flatshare should also take note. Comedy was tragedy plus

Angie’s Best Books of the Decade

I am winded, you guys. Winded  from laboring over this list. This is the first time I've attempted to cobble together a Best Books of the Decade list, and I can't say I'll be up to it for another ten years or so. But my, I couldn't resist the challenge (or profound pleasure, if we're being honest). I kept trying to winnow it down, kept forcing myself to be ruthless. Like somehow I could (or should) keep it to a top ten (flat impossible) or at least a top twenty-five (who are we kidding?). But after bidding those constraints good riddance, I really did press myself to take a hard, clear look at what hurts (to mangle my favorite Hemingway quote). Because these novels hurt in the best way. Each entry on this list is a five-star book in my books. Which means I wouldn't change a single thing about a single one of them. They are the ones I call perfect when I recommend them to friends and strangers. They are the ones I have read and reread over the past ten years and
